There are 35 artists on this list I have never heard of.
Like everything else in Obamaland: over hyped, over expensive, low grade and ultimately disappointing....
It would be 50 for me!
I bought a George Strait CD this year. That’s it.
I’ve got #1 on the list by Tame Impala. Highly recommended.
I’ll have to ask my kids.
My favorite album of the year is “Clockwork Angels” by RUSH. One of my kids’ favorites too.
All I recognized were Bobby Womack, Kanye West (’cause he’s such an obnoxious bigmouth) and David Byrne.
Graham Coxon, Spiritualized. Right up my alley. Thanks for posting.
I used to buy two or three albums a week back in the 70’s, but this..? I only recognize two of the names on this list...Bobby Womack (although I wouldn’t buy his albums) and David Byrne (who I did buy as a member of the Talking Heads.)
I must be way older than I thought, I have a very very different definition of what MUSIC is. Rap crap and discordant noises are not MUSIC.
As I read this I am sitting in my office with Bachman Turner Overdrive “Let It Ride” cranked up. Most of the music today is whale poop!
That list is a joke, right?
I dropped out of the “popular music scene” about 45 years ago.
Don’t get my music from [broadcast] radio, nor from television (watch next-to-no tv at all).
I found where the music is “true to my outlook” — acoustic, bluegrass, some classical, even folk (if you can get past the leftist tilt).
No more pop for me.
It’s as alien to my sensibilities as is Obama.
For me, new music stopped the day DLR left Van Halen.
This is a British list, so many of the performers are people who wouldn’t be known in the U.S. The interesting thing is some of the people on the list are performers from the U.S., who are known not here.
Last time I bought an album was in 1975, which reminds me, I need to get a new needle.
The music died after the 1970s.
I’ve only heard of 2 of the artists, and none of the music. Oh well.
Really? Who cares!
Was Adele’s 21 released this year? Good album.
